production of the buses and some of them are on the way. we have not accepted them but some of them are on the way to the bay area. and should be able to get the majority of the 50 buses at the end of the calendar year >> okay. so our resolution is needed to accept but manufacturing has already been done. so my other question and my staff informed me is the question of biofuels ease how we're able to use the bio fuel with those buses. in the one of our plans around greenhouse production what can you say about this to incorporate biofuels >> those engines are guaranteed by the manufacturer to run on b
20 which our entire sflooet is running on that right now. they'll do so improving without the growing plans having to retro he fit older engines. the next level what we're balancing is can we go beyond b 20 and we're testing b-1 hundred on non-revenue vehicles. i frankly don't know in this particular procurement is we've got the guarantee those are made for b 20. we want to work with you on the fleet going forward. memos of the technical intelligence in the development of a electric bus maybe being commercially available in the order of 5 years.
so that would be something we're also weighing as part of the best technology to hit our clean air objective. so the short answer is b 20 is guaranteed by the engine manufacturer. the immunes were made to accommodate that we don't have to go through the growing pains with the adjustment of other buses. we'll stay on top of the technology and move forward with the test for the now and then revenue group and keep track of the non-electric as well >> great, thank you. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you, mr. hale i didn't and to the others for bringing this forward. i want to ask you about our zero missions and how clay close we are to that.
the policy goes though how we're replacing our 79 fleet buses but i want to context of how the quicker purchasing that brings us to up 1 hundred and 12 gets you tell us to the zero plan >> we've looked at the fleet across the board in terms of it's performance and it's a fleet that averages over 12 years in general and the trillion fleet is much older. in some cases we have trolley cases. so part of the effort here is to systematically replace them. the hybrid are a quantum thank
you. leap forward so anything we're able to retire a fleet by itself bus in the next couple of years we'll have - we have the 1 hundred and 12 buses by the end of this year. we're have 60 foot trolley coaches and the first one b will be here in a year are that the most of the december two months we'll put in an rfp on the street to purchase thirty and 40 and 60 foot buses that will be hybrid buses. so the timing and sequencing of
that we'll replace the dual. obviously the diesel replacement will be a net game in terms of emissions. >> i know i ride on the electric buses it boosts moral for the riders but i notice here under the fiscal impact the new vehicles are quicker to board and they have their training for staff to drive the new vehicles and the installation for wireless or wireless downloads so they're more efficient it fit into the better efficient system as well; is that right. >> it's an interesting
observation maybe we haven't explained this but this is not our fathers bus, if you will. the level of diagnoses and sophistication both to the operator and to the mechanics those will have any number this is a rolling video system we will have on this series of buses we'll have all the interior cameras we have now and a plus two more cameras on the outside a much improved communication systems we've got positive feedback from the public. we have l e d lighting that's made a difference. we've got good friend of mine from the drivers and the public. we also made, you know, vienna the socialization process we've
reached out to the disability community and we've got a model bus for accessibility in this regard as well. we're working on that but we're very pleased with what we've seen >> i'd like to be added as a co-sponsor i'm supportive. >> thank ou colleagues and mr. hal i didn't. mr. rose our report >> mr. chairman and members of the committee as supervisor moore has referenced on page 89 of our reported or report table 3 shows a budget with a new flier with the total of $38 million plus and that includes the training and spare parts etc. on page 10 of our report it is
shown in table 34 including the associated costs of $6.1 million with the $38 million agreement are 44 million plus and again, we do recommend you approve this resolution >> colleagues, any questions for our budget analyst. okay seeing none, we'll open it up to public comment any comment. okay seeing none, public comment is closed. so i'd like to move approval >> we have a motion by supervisor mar and second by avalos we can do see without ox opposition. >> item 3 resolution approving the rental car lease agreement with the hesitating corporation
with the d t g and fox rent a car. >> okay. thank you mr. lighter week. >> thank you. good morning and councilmembers. the item before you seeks board approval to modify the airports 5 leases with the rental companies and to experience the one 5 year option to extend the terms. the city currently rents with the dj or g e operations were awarded as a competitive bid. and they have a percentage rent equal to 10 percent of the cities revenues. it would continue to adjust the
message annual to a amount equal to 8.5 percent. under the modification the terms of the rent would remain the same but allow for an early interpretation if the substantial renovation is necessary this would help us to set the rental rates to adjust for capital improvements for the facility. it includes the conclusion from the definition of gross revenues and add that the airport director would be allotted to have sub leasing requests to accommodate that agency >> i'd be happy to answer any
questions. >> colleagues, any questions and just a quick one. i know it says 57 different rental companies but avis and budget are together and alamo and another are together. are they separate entities r or - >> their grouped under the parents companies some of them you mentioned are part of the d g t operations and the northern california those are groupings of various rental companies that come together. >> but they're still separate corporations that come together and i believe they're separate but they partner together when we the requests for the proposals in order to sort of have a stronger financial
proposal but i could get the specifics on that stowaway. many of them could have merged but they operate at the airport as one parent's company >> another question that's not directly related to this. i know our city has goals of electric vehicle fleet and rental companies are one of the fleets that allow people to become for comfortable with the hybrids so we have incentives having hybrids and protecting electric vehicles >> we do the airport has part of the rental companies leased and there's incentives both to the companies and to the client who would rent the car they
would get decreases it cuts down on some of the fees the more clean vehicles they succeed in renting. >> any further questions. okay. thank you mr. rose on your report >> yes. on page 16 as shown in table 4 the annoyed minimum annual guarantee and percentage rent known as base rent together with the space rent from the rental companies in the first 4 years of the exciting all the time totaled 3 hundred million plus. and then on page 18 of our report we note it over the 5
year extension which is included the 5 exciting rental car leases the total rent would be a minimum of 2 hundred million plus we recommend you approve this resolution >> okay. mr. rose any questions seeing none, we'll move to public comment. >> is there anyone from the public that would like to speak? >> seeing none. mr. clerk call item 4 >> to the exhale of theburger king for a term of 10 years with the minimum annual guarantee of $72,722. >> thank you. we have the lady
bank. >> kaikt i didn't wagner with the airport. it seeks modification of a lease doing business as a burger king franchise. the original lease was proofed in october and had a 10 year term with a 2 year extension. subsequentially the airport did a renovation requiring the burger king to close temporarily. it would approve a bigger space for the burger king franchise in the bordering area. those renovation will be
sustained and it would allow the tenant to be reimbursed the tenant would pay a minimal guarantee of $40,000. the airport concession annual sales is projected and this is based on burger kings previous sales and it - they estimate based on that the tenant would pay the airport on the percentage rent of about $174,000 a year. the agency recommended an approval we need to amend the $40,000 amount fiduciaries >> colleagues, any questions. >> i i know it's a
straightforward contract issue here or lease here but could we get a list of the different types of food options at the aren't from healthy options to how much fast food is there. you said that burger king and i've enjoyed my share of worships over the years but it would be helpful to understand how many local businesses are there >> i'd be happy to get you that list. i should mention the airport has a sequential food component of you'll our leases that will be included in the lease. so while we tried try to have local companies and we typically don't have a lot of fast food at
the airport address passengers at san francisco look for those areas so we have the sustainable food component will be part of this burger king list and i'll get you a list >> that would be helpful. i know that burger king along with other fast food chains are inching towards the option so thank you >> okay. thank you very much mr. rose can you go to our report. >> yes. mr. chairman on page 22 as ms. wagner as indicated the airport estimates that the new burger king franchise would generate oh, about $1,000,077,000,000 plus in the first year of the operation and
that's based on previous burger king performance. so based on that estimate we estimate that the gate 74 would pay the airport a total percentage of rent of 1 hundred 74 thousand for the first year and exceeds the estimated total of 2 hundred and 84 plus. we ask i correct the amount and recommend the resolution as amended >> thank you, mr. rose and all right. we'll move to public comment is there anyone from the public that would like to speak? >> >> we have some suggested amendments and a we'll take those await objection we can take the other item without
objection. >> item 5 submitting the park code to set temporary green fees for the golf course through no other reason 2015 to accommodate the renovation of the greens. >> good afternoon, supervisors katie with rec and park i'm here to ask you for an ordinance to temporarily reduce the fees for the park and rec. we're going to renovate all the cutting greens at harrod. the greens are 10 years old and have been infested by pests. those pests increase the funnel
infection of the greens and the infestation the department is going to replace the greens. the greens will take approximately four months and the department will provide temporary greens and those are not an ideal putting source they'll be rougher so they decrease the play ability of the course. to encourage the golfers to play hardably we prop discount fees during this period per with the reduced fees we expect this will reduce the play by approximately 40 percent at the golf course. if we didn't decrease the rates
it would drop by 85 percent. it continues to drive about two thirds of our normal rounds. by reducing the rates we actually expect to generate more revenue. under the ordinance the hardings regular rates will be back on may 31st or when the gm certifies the renovation is complete. i want to say the approved budgeted for the current fiscal years does assume the reduced revenue as a result of the renovation, however, the revenue will bounce back in the 2014, 15 budget >> colleagues, any questions.
supervisor mar, i appreciate the data and i see that glen eagle in the past renovated 9 holes and a used temporary greens the rounds dropped 60 percent and why do i estimate 25 percent the round lost >> we're renovating 19 graz as opposed to 9. >> and the hemming towed infestation is that going on in the city. >> you know supervisor i can't answer that. does anyone know >> i'm guessing each of the individual courses the rec and park department are looking how to deal with infestation.
>> it's our premier department it receives for attention than our other courses in the way that harding is not. >> the hemming towed infestation has not been identified at other courses. >> i appreciate the suggestions and this is really helpful in showing that the reducing of the fees is actually to increase the revenue for the bumpy four months. there's been a 9 hole i'm guessing that the 18th holeers
are not going to move over to fleming >> thank you >> colleagues, any further qutions okay. mr. rose our report please. thank you. mr. chairman and members of the committee on page 278 at the bottom of that page we report that the temporary instruction in greens fees will result in the reduction of 5 hundred and 95 thousand dollars in 2014 and overall as shown in page 28 the rp d loss of fiscal year 2013 and fourteen is over a million dollars. yes, it's correct the department has stated this has been
contemplated, however, you must consider whether or not you want to reduce the fees on a temporary basis because this subsidies the annual operating costs and the proposed greens fees is estimate to sunlight u result in an annual loss of over $1 million in 2013 and fourteen so we consider that to be a policy matter for the board of supervisors >> seeing none, we'll move to public comment seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, can i have a motion to move it for the record we'll take that would you indicate, sir, >> mr. clerk any other business before us. >> that completes the business for today.
>> thank you, everyone. we're >> there are kids and families ever were. it is really an extraordinary playground. it has got a little something for everyone. it is aesthetically billion. it is completely accessible. you can see how excited people are for this playground. it is very special. >> on opening day in the brand- new helen diller playground at north park, children can be seen swinging, gliding, swinging, exploring, digging, hanging, jumping, and even making drumming sounds.
this major renovation was possible with the generous donation of more than $1.5 million from the mercer fund in honor of san francisco bay area philanthropist helen diller. together with the clean and safe neighborhood parks fund and the city's general fund. >> 4. 3. 2. 1. [applause] >> the playground is broken into three general areas. one for the preschool set, another for older children, and a sand area designed for kids of all ages. unlike the old playground, the new one is accessible to people with disabilities. this brand-new playground has several unique and exciting features. two slides, including one 45- foot super slide with an elevation change of nearly 30 feet. climbing ropes and walls, including one made of granite.
